Trinity Concert Band
About Trinity Concert Band
Trinity Concert Band is a community-based symphonic wind band based in Earley near Reading. Its members span a wide range of musical ability from professional musicians to talented amateurs. Founded in July 2001 to bring together musicians who enjoy playing in a group of friendly, like-minded and mutually supportive people, the band now comprises over 40 playing members whose enthusiasm and dedication has resulted in presenting and performing concerts to a very high standard. The band has held several very successful one day workshops, where guest conductors are invited to work with the band on music which is more challenging than their regular repertoire, whilst maintaining the fun and enjoyable atmosphere that comes from making music together. Over the last few years the band has been to the National Concert Band Festival – a day long festival of music for wind band where the bands are judged on their performances. We have received several gold and 2 platinum awards (the top award). The top award gives the band automatic entry into the national finals which this year were held at the Royal Northern College of Music. The band received a gold award – a true indication of the strength of musicianship achieved by the band. In Spring 2016 the band undertook a short tour of Malta, playing three concerts hosted by local band clubs.
